Joy to you today! Yesterday, hubby and I passed on a movie and went shopping instead, at one of our favorite furniture stores. One of the first rooms we want to set up is our guest bedroom; we have decided to go from Oak furniture to a darker color. The antique chest that we refinished several years ago will be in there; it is made of walnut and beautiful wood, so we thought we'd get nightstands to match and then stain the headboard. Finding any nightstands in a walnut stain was almost impossible; in fact, we came home with two pieces that I loved, only to find out that they were a cherry color and clashed with the chest. So back they went to the store; we did order two more that had a closer stain, that we'll get tomorrow. This time, hubby took a small piece of wood with the color of the chest so we could compare. Hubby loved the pieces, so if they don't work in the bedroom we will put them in the family room as end tables. We also got two lamps that are very unusual in design and look like they are antiques. It will be fun to see how this room turns out.
Today, I'm off to the hair salon for a cut & color before we go on vacation. We still have quite a bit of time before we get to enjoy some sunshine, but after talking with my gal I decided it was better to have it done now. My hair is hard to manage and color seems to help.
I am also hoping to get a bike ride in this afternoon; our weather will be nice for several days.
Last week when I saw my primary care physician, he asked how I was. I responded I was great, he said "really?" When I again told him I was good, he said he wished all his patients had that attitude. I told him it was better than the alternative. A positive attitude makes all the difference.
Whatever you do today, do it with a smile; makes life all the better.
